With the announcement of school closures and work from home policies in place over the next few weeks, we wanted to share some creative ideas on how to pass the time at home.
Team AMI started sourcing ideas after our Product Manager Ashley shared that she and her husband would be building a 2,500 piece Lego set at home together over the weekend. #couplegoals 🏆
Have you tried adult coloring books? They’ve been around for a while and are making a (timely) comeback. Our Training Lead Meg shared that they help with stress relief and are also a great way to pass time.
Try some crafts at home.🎨 McHarper Manor, a visual arts center in Cincinnati, will be going live Monday thru Friday every week at 1pm ET with free arts & crafts tutorials. Check out their supplies list for their first week of activities starting Monday, March 16th.
Have you put off trying recipes that take a bit of time? Our CEO Amal shared that she and her husband plan to bake bread at home, inspired after watching Jon Favreau bake bread on his Netflix show The Chef Show.
